Like many of you I have been grieved by the flood of news stories of leadership failures in the Church. There is no need for me to mention the names of the abusive pastors, their churches, and their denominations or associations. They are already all over the news. I do not desire to give any of these failed leaders any more publicity. This toxic outbreak of leadership abuse in not limited to a particular brand of Christianity. We are grossly offended by the stories of church leaders—both Catholic and Evangelical--abusing innocent children. Time and again we learn of out of control pastors who intimidate with their anger and lust for power as they disarm the people who are charged to hold them accountable with their charismatic personalities. We grow weary of their “me first” mentality instead of living out a “Christ only” leadership posture.
